Practice building a shelter. Get out the Scout Handbook or look for directions online. Create a shelter using supplies you have in your emergency and/or car kits, such as mylar blankets, duct tape, bungee cords and tarps. After a disaster it may not be possible to inhabit your home, but you may not want to leave your property and you may end up “camping out”. If you should become stranded on a trip you will need to know how to build a shelter. If you don’t have these items, now is the time to purchase them and practice how to use them for shelter. No supplies? Time to purchase some!
